asserting our rights as people in the united states and the san francisco immigrant rights defense committee plays a strong role in that. locally and actually at the federal level as well. they have been part of our work around an insuring that we have done comprehensive and insurance reform and it's a progress and it would have not been done without the work and to make sure the community has a strong voice to assert new policy moving forward. today is a great day in terms of what we are doing in san francisco. we are going to be introducing our due process for our ordinance for today and that's based on organizing work by the san francisco rights committee. i want to say thank you and give you a commendation that is worthy of your great work in organizing. we have the strongest if not the strongest policy in the country. that is about the work going on, not just for months and perhaps years in the making. that is the consolidation of power that creates change. i want to say thank you for all your great work. the defense committee is joined by several, many organizations, i will name them.
an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50 years after gideon. what i would like to do is read a little section of the book first and talk for a few minutes and read a brief section. so, the section i'm going to read is in the conclusion because it's about public defenders in a conference i went to with public defenders since i thought there were probably quite a few of you in the audience, you might find it musing. i don't know. the national defenders association opened the conference in washington dc in 2011 addressed the crowd of 300 public defenders with a room with space for many more. does society demonize you? of course. do they suggest you are working for the wrong people? of course they do do they suggest you are work for thugs? of course the

is a key priority for the national defense? theaid the tour, replacement -- senator, the ouracement is critical to nuclear deterrent strategy and capability. have the committed to air launched missiles as well. this would seem to me to be the first priority in terms of modernization. is this consistent with your views and strategies? the flexibility of having a triad is very important to our deterrent strategy. form ise ohio last nearing its end of life, it is very important that we replace it in addition to the calculations you just mentioned. one of the things that will be from theto support department of defense to do that. a -- nos to be commitment to modernization of the whole triad. since most of our eggs are in the summer rains, we have to do that first. is that your view? it is not in my purview as to how they are paid for. it is important that we move forward with that platform. >> we are in the met of a like the 70'sts and 80's. now it is the sea battle. you will be in the midst of that. general scupper on the -- scaparrotti will be in asia. it is strategically toward the
of the defense budget. taiwan's defense minster has resigned. they stepped down after a public outcry after the death of a young soldier. he died of heat stroke at the beginning of this month. officers had forced him to exercise vigorously and deny him water. they were punishing him for bringing a mobile phone with a camera on to a base. investigators found that ia surveillance video may have been tampered with. the leaders plan to stop in 2015 and want to switch to voluntary enlistments and hope to create units of italy troops. # >> residents of concern japan are picking up the pieces. torrential rains slashed the region leaving one dead and two missing. we have a report. >> this is how the downpours left the city in the prefecture. the force of floodwaters left houses leaning and covered in mud. this is completely filled with sludge. they are covered with mud and rocks. they are strewn with lumber and other debro. mudslides block train tracks and rescuers are searching for the missing and the efforts are being hampered by the risk of landslides. a month's worth of rain fell in a half day
in california. she became a defense attorney and spent 20 years advocating for it and it finally passed in 1920. how do public defenders contribute to their anonymity. >> i'm not surprised it was a woman. but i think that much like me, the population that is served by public defender lawyers is so invisible without a lot of political power, but you add to that, public defenders, i'm going to grossly generalized, so here i go, as a group, wrap, i think in a zelous representation, they tend to be not as open to the public and media. it's very hard to trust that somebody will represent your story well. i really encourage you to do what karen does which is let people see what you do. trust them to tell the story because they will see it. they see it in this film which every time i see it i think it doesn't go far enough, i didn't show enough, i didn't do it and people are moved by the story of people fighting for people. everybody reacts and responds to that. i think we need more access to your stories. i this i they are the greatest hero stories. the only thing i disagree with karen is my lawyers
plaintive. the plaintiff may not be a professional plaintiff. that does not make any difference. the defense has been tried in court. is a civil rights statute. -- it is a civil rights statute. they can be a perfectly legitimate plaintiffs to bring a lawsuit, and there are a number of people who belong to disability organizations that actually, that is what their livelihood is, bringing these lawsuits. the gentleman over here, who was also a lawyer knows of at least one case involving two lawsuits. they started all neighborhoods. the target places like san francisco because this is an old city with old buildings, virtually none of which comply. we only have new construction that would be billed to 1988 compliance standards, usually. whatever kind of business you have, the building part does not enforce ada compliance. you have your architect look at the ada if you are going to make a major revision anyway. is very expensive to do that. the demand letter is a requirment for the state -- is a requirement for the state laws to be brought. for civil rights cases, you are expected to know the law

and today on "studio b," a former military prosecutor, who is now a defense attorney, told me the government has not convicted somebody of aiding the enemy since 1917. >> that was is essentially a case where somebody was disclosing information because they wanted americans to be killed. they wanted the enemy to have this information. and, in this case, i think the government just was not able to prove that pfc manning intentionally disclosed this to the enemy. >> shepard: manning supporters demonstrated outside othe courthouse today they see him as the whistle blower, a hero, not a criminal. so do lawyers who just called him naive with good intentions. manning admits he did give wikileaks more than 700,000 documents. prosecutors claim he knew al qaeda would see that information on that, prosecutors for the government lost completely. catherine herridge is on fox top story in the courthouse in fort mead in maryland. what happened in the courtroom today, catherine. >> late today the a.p. picked up comments from the defense indicating that they really felt today's verdict was a significant win
a travesty. >> mid win, if you are the defense, what do you do to separate this son from this father? >> what i would do is focus on the son and build him up as a person, and get the jury to understand what kind of person this man is. he's a young person, and i think jury oftentimes feel several thinkic for a defendant who is really, really young. i found that tape to be shocking, saying he doesn't understand why people are so persistent that this is a murder. i think it's the best way to try this case. >> it was chilling to hear the father talk about that like that. joshua young is 17 years old right now. he was 15 when the murder was committed. his appearance, he does seem so incredibly young. that is what the jury will be looking at. a very young man, but how much of the father will they see in the trial? how much of that other image, heather, is likely to get into their heads? >> that's what the prosecution is going to have to do. plaintiffs a suppression hearing to keep out of the some of the statements of josh young. it would be interesting if he admitted to some participation, it will
: we are just hours away from a sentencing hearing, on wednesday morning, where defense and prosecutors will argue of over what is an appropriate sentence. the judge could decide to let the charges run concurrently or string them out, and come up with a number of years that manning will serve. erin? >> that number of years so important. thank you very much, chris. >>> republican congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee and the house intelligence committee. good to see you, sir, as always. >> thank you. >> are you happy, dispointed? what word would you use? >> i'm gratified that he was convicted on five counts of espionage, plus the other theft counts. this is a serious, serious crime. and five counts, that should have a very, very significant prison sentence and hopefully it will be deterrent to other people such as bradley manning or edward snowden, that type of individual that blooechls they can disclose national secrets. >> so, the essentisentencinsent this court-martial is going to start tomorrow. he could get up to 136 years. what is the appropriate
he disclosed, and computer fraud. defense attorney davis comes hailed the acquittal on aiding the enemy saying "today is a good day, but bradley is by no means out of the fire. his supporters have argued manning is a whistle-blower who exposed official malfeasance for the public good. >> engage, roger! >> reporter: among the most incendiary of his disclosure, a 2007 video that wikileaks called "collateral murder." it showed the crew of a u.s. helicopter gunship in iraq as mate sheen gunned a group of men suspected of being iraqi insurgents. instead, those killed included a reuters news service cameraman and his driver. the 25-year-old manning had already pleaded guilty to several lesser charges. the sentencing phase on today's convictions begins tomorrow and the penalty could add up to 136 years in prison. and we'll have more on the manning verdict after the other news. >> ifill: still to come on the newshour, a new definition of cancer. senator gillibrand on curbing sexual assaults in the military; drug gangs turn honduras into the murder capital of the world; and life and de

of defense procures weapons systems, a system that is to a large degree broken, unfortunately. it is now even more important with defense funding likely to be restrained to reduce funding in the coming years, our legislators overseeing major defense acquisition programs to make sure they're efficient and effectsive is as important today as it's ever been. indeed, even more so. a recently released government accountability office, g.a.o., report that is highly critical of the navy's literal combat ship program brings me to the floor today. on that program, the navy plans to spend over $40 billion to buy a total of 52 sea frames and 64 so-called plug-and-play mission modules. these are modules that would be moved on and off depending on the mission that the literal combat ship is engaged in. the combined capability of those modules with the sea frames is supposed to give thee ships their intended lethality. until recently, my main concern with this program has been the unbridled growth to the cost to build the sea frames of the lead ship. the lead ship called the freedom, the steel-hulled versi
, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys fees generally run between $10,000 or $15,000. my colleague over year has learned t
applauded the defense team after the verdict, neither the defense or prosecution spoke directly to reporters. via twitter, wikileaks said dangerous national security extremism from the obama administration. the reporter that broke edward snowden's story said manning's treatment seemed to explain why the former contractor fled the country. >> reporter: there was no immediate response from the obama administration to the manning verdict. he now faces maximum sentence of 136 years in prison, which is effectively a life sentence. that sentencing phase begins tomorrow, and it is expected to take several weeks, bret. >> catherine herridge live at fort meade. thank you. >>> another indication tonight of major problems for the veterans administration. it has to do with the construction of new va facilities. correspondent alicia acuna is in aurora, colorado with tonight's edition of it's all your money. >> just overwrought with cost overruns and broken deadlines, and that's not unusual for government projects, but these are hospitals. >> reporter: construction of a new veterans administration hospita
television network... >> following international outrage, changes were promised by the u.s. defense secretary donald rumsfeld. >> it's my obligation to evaluate what happened, to make sure that those who have committed wrongdoing are brought to justice, and to make changes as needed to see that it doesn't happen again. >> but we've unearthed 300 allegations of abuse meted out by american forces on iraqi prisoners after abu ghraib. >> detainee reports that he was abused during his capture. detainee is missing his right eye and has scars on his right forearm. >> detainee alleged that american forces, one, punched him and hit him with weapons; two, threw urine on him; and 3, applied electric shocks to his body. >> two marines allegedly videotaped themselves holding a knife to a detainee's throat and a m9 to the detainee's head. >> over a 6-year period, the data records the imprisonment of 180,000 iraqis. that's one in 50 of the adult male population. >> a lot of innocent people, large numbers of innocent people, were being hoovered up in these military operations, and then sent into a prison sys
to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.
was so obvious there was no defense to. it and if he is sentenced to the maximum, he is facing 20 years. he kept a slight credit because he was abused in the pre- trial confinement and gave hymn credit for a couple hundred days. we start with 20 years and then get to serious charges. here is significance. bradley manning argues he didn't reveal them to the enemy but the woky leaks and under supreme court law wikileaks can't be published because if they are a journalistic entitties, then the person who gives it to the journalist and the journalist who reveals it, the person who gives it cannot be prosecuted for what the journalist did. the judge may push the law in one direction or another. we haven't sewn a case like this. norm willy the charge is against the journalist and here it is against the person who gave it to journalist. >> kathryn harris might have news for us. >> with an explanation. >> yeah, we just had information that came out of the courtroom by that information center and what we are told that on the first count, the most source count bradley manning was found not guilty
. >> bill: yeah, that was about whether the united states should have a robust defense overseas and intervene in places. >> exactly. >> bill: cleaned up like afghanistan. so christie is for that that's a traditional republican tradition where is paul is against it. so, some might say though this is healthy, to have this in the republican party to kind of shake it out because they are going to have a fight on their hands to defeat hillary clinton in 2006. -- 2016. >> that's right. if hillary clinton runs she will be associated with these obama policies that have given some -- a number, in fact, in the democratic party real pause. so, what's interesting about this is this is a problem that both parties are having simultaneously. i think the republicans probably need to have this out. and decide what kind of a party they want to be. >> bill: that's right. >> it looks like they are well on heir way to doing that. >> bill: brit, thank you. as the factor moves along this evening. we will report on a new bill to stop paying accused terrorist nidal hasan. jeanine pirro has some thoughts
or what the defense said. as far as whether private manning is traitor, that should not be band aided back. it has a unique stigma to it. unless someone is going to prosecute him for treason he shouldn't be labeled a traitor. i think the claim he's a whistle blower is off based. he may have had what he considers good intentions but at the end of the day it's not especially to every citizen to decide whether to share the count country's crown jewels with others. >> that raises the question. barbara, i don't know you've done a lot of reporting. 750,000 pages were handed over to wikileakss and a lot of that posted on the internet. a lot of it was classifieied secret. it waunt higher classification. based on everything you've heard, how much real damage to u.s. national security was done as a result of this? >> this has been the debate all along and continues to be the debate in the snowden case. how much damage? people will tell you that bradley manning leaked a lot of information but it was information intelligence at a point in time. something that happened in iraq. something that happened
enters the sentencing phase, where the prosecution and defense will present more arguments. israel and the palestinian authority have resumed peace talks for the first time in three years. negotiators sat down for a dinner hosted by secretary of state john kerry in washington. the talks will be overseen by martin indyk who was named as the new special envoy to the middle east. we will have more on the talks after headlines. ousted egyptian president mohamed morsi has been allowed to meet with european union more than a ousted month ago. he and the muslim brotherhood have continued to call for his reinstatement after 72 people were killed on saturday after police opened fire on a brotherhood rally. we will have more from egypt from sharif abdel kouddous later in the broadcast. the fbi has rescued more than 100 victims of forced prostitution and have a numerous people. the assistant director of the fbi's criminal investigative division spoke on monday. >> sex trafficking among children remains one of the most prevalent, violent, and unconscionable crimes in the country. despite chall
as a whistleblower. the prosecution cited a conviction from the civil war days. the defense denied that bradley manning aided the enemy. arguing there's no evidence at all that he knew al qaeda militants ever even looked at wikileaks, and today it appears the judge agreed. bradley manning shows very little emotion, might have smiled at the end. catherine herridge is live. tell us more how this plate out in court. >> the military courthouse is about three-quarters of a mile from where i'm standing right now, and just before 1:00 eastern, about 12 minutes before that hour, private first class gradley mapping entered the courtroom and at that time, at least initially, he appeared fairly relaxed but as the clock tick down he became understandably tense. when verdict was read, manning stood up, faced the judge directly with his arms like stove pipes at his side. showed virtually no emotion, and two dozen of his supporters were in the courtroom as public spectators, and they were silent. afterwards, those speck taters connected with the defense attorneys and there was some applause, but virtually tha
. that was a phrase used by the french defense minister. an unfortunate expression that he used. the early election, the fact that this has happened six months after the initial beginning of the conflict, was perhaps to prevent more grassroots elements from establishing themselves, to legitimize france's involvement. not everyone is so pessimistic. this is taken from -- he starts the article by saying -- by quoting the french national anthem. mali's day of glory has arrived. this is a very positive event. be careful, he lists off a couple of things to watch out for. politicians calling the results to early. everybody has a responsibility to respect the process and to return the country to a degree of morality -- plurality and constitutionality. >> fine words. good to see you, thank you for joining us. do you think it is important to do that, to make sure we do not get too much speculation? that is a big problem with journalists. we like to speculate on things. we are going to speculate, but we -- what do we do that? >> we have absolutely no results and we may not have any results for several days.

's trying to go on the offense and put republicans on defense. by narrowing it down as he did, he's trying to make it a clearer choice. certainly republicans are coming up with their reasons why they don't want to do it, and it gets back to the fact they want it coupled with other programs, other attempts to overhaul the tax code. so it will be interesting to see whether and how long republicans can just say they don't want this. i think, you know, we've seen this sort of play happen before in washington where the president goes on offense. he gets democrats or republicans back on their heels and they come up with something else. we see this play out until a deadline. >> and the president referred to when i think some people believed that republicans are at least a part of the party back on its heels as it relates to obama care. i want to the play what ted cruz said in an interview, i believe it was yesterday, as the president noted 40 attempts, but it's more than that, to repeal obama care. let's play ted cruz. >> this is our last and best chance to defund it. stand up, use the constituti

at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do
are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people who are making us weak in defense. >> in fact, chris christie's new jersey pays much more into the federal government through taxation than it gets back in federal spending. for every dollar in tax revenue that new jersey sends to washington it gets back only 77 cents. where does the 23 cents go? to rand paul's kentucky and other states. think of them as the gimme states, if you will, who take much more from the federal government than they ever pay for in federal tax revenue. for every dollar rand paul's kentucky sends to washington kentucky gets back $1.57. chris christie might be seeking the electoral votes of rand paul's gimme gimme state someday. so he will probably use a different line of defense against rand paul's gimme gimme gimme nonsense. joining me now, steve mcmahon, veteran democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies. steve, who are you betting on in this fight? >> i love it. i hope they go and they fight to a draw an
and not letting enough money be left over for national defense, so i think it's precisely those people that are making us weak in defense. i didn't start this one, and i don't plan on starting things by criticizing other republicans, but if they wan to make me the target, you know, they will get it back in spades. >> one makes me think of a high school student council election, give me, give me, give me. republican king of new york issued a stark warning to the party on cnn's "state of the union." here he is. >> when you have rand paul actually comparing snowden to martin luther king or henry david thoreau, this is madness. this is the anti-war left wing democrats of the 1960s that nominated george mcgovern and destroyed their party for almost 20 years. i don't want that happening to our party. >> love this fight. joining me now are two msnbc political analysts. neither strong republicans from what i can tell. david corn with "mother jones" and jonathan alter who comes with an old-line democratic party. "the center holds" is his great book. beautifully written book by john alter, "obam
defense, timely hitting and even though they used a different closer down the stretch, this one still had a beard to fear. [ laughter ] >> there is no longer a beard to fear in the person of brian williams. mean time we had another meet and greet session. this with the three big major college football programmers represented. of course. stanford getting a lot of attention with their rose bowl success. first time ever as a result all of their home games are sold out. >> people are just going to come just to come. you have to give them something to see. something exciting. and that is been something we could establish, an exciting style of play. a team that has a chance to be successful. >> you will get your season tickets sold every year. >> think fast, react fast, play fast. we want to recruit fast kids. everything happens fast. that is why by design everything is simple. >> i believe it is important to instill a culture of embracing challenges. if we can stress our football team and challenge them as much as we can during august they will be better prepared for those challenges coming th
ththat, it was a surface flow. this is a reservoir. on my right is this defensive the positive dune sand. the wind blows, it comes from the ocean beach. because the sand is moving, you can see evidence along this side of the hill in 1989. the vibrations in accelerated. you have a significant amount of movement to the point that the homes that uc had very severe damage for two blocks. we recognized what the problem was at the time, it was a matter of loose sand on a very steep slope. thank you for the effort. we were able to get federal funding and design which you see in the upper walls. the lower walls was actually billed as part of the wpa. the upper wall was built in 1991-'92. this is a concrete wall and it has rocked going through the wall that extends the distance of 80 feet beyond the wall. the next earthquake occurs, the wall is designed to resist and the movement of the sand and allowed it to move down hill. this is a classic example of the creek and degree flow and exists all the way the area. we might see the other evidence. we have done nothing to improve the quality and the s
association. the bar association has been our partners in terms of providing defense for poor people. in cases where the public defender is not able to provide representation, those cases are handled by the private bar and they are doing an incredible job. so thank you very much for that. i want to thank jose as a who is a public defender and here to celebrate with us. we are going to start today by showing a brief video explaining the gideon decisions >> take this empty lot. today you would never know it but history was made here. mostly all is gone and so are the people. the principle they left is still standing. it was almost as bad at life. >> it was a constitutional hero, but the cases that come to the court don't come from the winners in society. they come from the losers. clarence gideon was involved in the justice system since he was a kid. he had been getting in trouble. >> trouble seemed to find gideon. literally small change had gone miss ing from this cigarette machine, maybe $5 total. that's the pool hall there on the bottom. some wine, some beer and a few bottles of coca-cola w
the real property laws is in california and what defenses you might have or what arguments you might have, you are faced with a trained lawyer and someone who has been to law school for 3 years, someone whose practiced for some period of time. what we need here to answer your question is a playwright. this is mccobb. this is weird. we are not on anyone's calendar to speak of. that for some of us, that's what makes it fun. >> thank you. jum. [ applause ] we are now going to take audience questions and answers. no cards. so please pass them in so we can ask questions. you'll let me again ask karen, you spent the last year-and-a-half studying and observing how gideon's promise have been broken. what do you think is an obstacle to closing the gap between rich and poor people's justice. what have we learned about the solution? >> well, i think the biggest obstacle to closing this gap is the political desire to do so which is kind of -- i talked about that a little bit in my talk. but i think that, you know, and you can learn this lesson in many ways. i don't know when you go to work, i have t

. and often the dialogue that occurs between a judicial officer and a district attorney and a defense attorney where there is a public defender or private counsel is really a discussion that is based on perhaps the individuals current offense, it maybe based on the individual's history of offending. it's really not a scientific way of having a discussion around safety and around flight risk. often many of the people that are given very high dollar bails are people where the bench is looking where all the intents and purpose there is no real bail that is because this person is a real risky person or perceived to be risky and perhaps a better response to this ought to be if we think this person and property is risky, there should be no bail. conversely if there is a way to evaluate that a person is not a danger to society and because of their evaluation of them that they will show up for court they will be released on their own recognizance. we have a high level of percentage wise of pretrial detentions as opposed to other counties. part of reason for that is because we have a very high level of
, attorneys painted two very different pictures of private first class bradley manning. defense attorneys called the 25-year-old intelligence analyst, a humanist, concerned about abuses in iraq. here's what he told the judge -- >> but prosecutors say he's a traitor, whether or not he intended to aid the enemy. some of the 700,000 documents manning gave to wikileaks were found when navy s.e.a.l.s raided osama bin laden's compound. >> i think it theoretically could have hurt soldiers it could have gotten people killed. i don't know that it did. but it certainly is something we would want to guard against as a military. >> there's been no evidence of harm caused by these leaks. the government is saying the sky is falling, the sky is falling. but the fact is, the sky not falling. >> manning's supporters say the judge's ruling could have a chilling effect on whistleblowers and journalists. >> if they put something on the internet, the government can turn around and say, if the government doesn't like it, that putting the act of putting it on the internet is an act of aiding al qaeda. >> mannin
that could discredit a key witness who helped convict ingmar guandique of levy's death. defense attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial based on the information. levy's 2001 disappearance became international news after she was romantically linked with then- modesto rep. gary condit. eight people, including three children, were injured after an explosion shook this south philadelphia neighborhood late saturday morning. one home was destroyed and two others were heavily damaged. neighbors pitched in to help rescue those inside the homes. witnesses explains what happened. >>:"i saw the whole house was down. i saw the house next to it was falling over. i saw firemen. this dude was burnt up. they were hosing him down with the fire hose."
